Today we look at a game that was originally released as an arcade game but then got turned into a computer game for the Sega Game Gear. G-LOC: Air Battle was released on the Game Gear at the end of 1990. It was developed by Sega AM2 and also published by Sega.

The game was all about fighter planes and the aim of it was to shoot down as many of your opponents planes as possible. The enemies planes attack you from all areas so you have to turn both front and back to shoot the down.  Throughout the game your plane becomes upgraded when you reach certain goals.

It was one of the first arcade machine games to offer 360 computer game functions. Some of the arcade machine formats were in the form of moving seats just like the one on the left.
